    Depends what you consider "much" to be. You can see all the Messiers and probably a thousand or so of the brighter NGC objects. Plus planets, comets, asteroids, the moon, etc. That's enough for me. ;-)

    No, not much from a basic suburban environment. However, I was amazed at all
    that I could see with my 80mm f/6 achromat from a really dark site (Dragoon,
    Arizona). One could be occupied for a lifetime under those conditions --
    even with such a small telescope.

    Good for you. I can't see all this bonanza of deep sky objects in my
    mag.6 skies and more importantly I can't see much detail at all in most
    of them, just featureless blobs of light. And as far as planets go the
    performance is even more appalling.

    You will be able to see that Saturn has a ring around it and if you walk in
    front of the scope, people looking through the scope will be able to see
    Uranus (your-anus) :-)

    I agree, but perhaps we should qualify the "seeing" part. Yes, you can
    see these objects, but if you're expecting to see things like you see in
    the photographs and images taken even through amateur telescopes, then
    the best advice I have for any observer is --- forget about all of
    those. Nothing up there looks anything like those photos/images.
    Except for the Moon, everything up there is more like pastel colors with
    fuzzy borders and details. I guess for most hobbies that involve
    seeing nature from a distance, that may be true, but it's especially
    true for Astronomy.

    Sometimes a juvenile/pottymouth sense of humor is better than a highbrow
    sense of humor. I highly recommend the hilarious movie "Dumb and Dumber" as
    an example of this type of humor. Give it a try. You may find that you like
    it. :-)

    I also recommend "Beavis and Butthead Do America".

    I don't mind juvenile humor when it isn't about the 4,398th time I've
    heard it. If you seriously think Uranus jokes are funny at this point,
    I think you need to get out a little more.

    In other words, the problem with the fifth grade isn't that it's not
    sophisticated, it's that it was all umpteen years ago and I've heard it
    thousands of times since. Simpsons and South Park are fresher than
    that, and that's saying something.
